Goes down about as smooth as silk and it gets you right. Smells like a college basement party in northern wisconsin without a single cracked window in sight, so I suppose that means it smells like High Life or MGD coupled with sweaty baseball caps. I almost tasted alcohol on this one, and although other reviewers claim an apple taste, I'd like to claim a significant pear aftertaste. She's a good beer. The can says it uses imported hops as well, if that means something to you. Only reason she isn't a five is because she's about as flat as a red dog.

This is not just the worst beer I've ever had, it is the worst beverage product period. Flavor pallet includes: Vick's cough syrup, rotten fruit, floor cleaner, and wood glue. This is the beer you buy to give to someone you absolutely despise, and its murderous hate you buy them 2.

Man this is some gnarly stuff. Aroma really wasn't too bad: fruit, caramel, spice, some corn. Flavor is super sweet and massive alcohol. Body is very heavy and finish was like the aftertaste of sucking on a sugar cube. Can't drink this.

I bought two of these (24oz cans for $1.99 each) and I knew they would be terrible but they were worse than i thought. The first one wasn't so bad but by the second one it was too much to handle, I ended up puking on the last drink of the last one just trying to force it down.

I once chewed up dried peyote buttons. Later in life, I sampled a special mineral water from Utah. Both these things tasted worse than anything I have ever put in my mouth. The peyote high was awesome though, after I threw up.

Camo Black is right up there with them. I poured it into a frosted glass, took a sip, and spit it out, then poured it down the drain. AVOID AVOID AVOID. It is TERRIBLE!

Alright so this isn’t going to be the typical beer review like me telling you the audience about the color, smell, and the amount of head. Instead I’m going to review this beer in the practical since because it’s a can of malt liquor.
The sound of the can cracking open is getting me excited. It sounds like someone taking a big bite out of an apple. I’m not going to bother smelling it because it’s MALT LIQUOR and it is meant to be slammed. So here we go. I chugged ¼ of the can before my gag reflex decided to come to work. Taste sweet as hell and also taste like Dynatabe mixed with whiskey. No hiding the alcohol taste in this shit. This shit is revolting, putrid. Alright got ½ the can before the gag reflex kicked in again and gave me the shivers with goose bumps, the taste took my breath away. The label should say CAMO BLACK EXTRA the malt liquor that fights back. They should have a guarantee of your money back if you can finish the can, I doubt very few can. Alright at this point with ½ of the can left it’s a battle of who is going to win me or the CAMO BLACK. I’ll tell you this I ain’t never poured out a beer before but with ½ of the can left staring me down, my body gets pissed off at me right now and wants me to give in. This shit kicked my ass. I killed the can but it took me 30min to do it in, I must be getting old. I sit and do the math, I realized I drank a 6 pack in the form of one can.
Alright overall the beer is good as a novelty at best. If you’re looking to get drunk then CAMO BLACK EXTRA is a guarantee. If you can suffer through the pain, this beer delivers one hell of a buzz, shit one more and I might be in black out mode. If 2 of these cans don’t get you f****d up than you need Jesus.

Camo Black Extra has a thin, white head, a deep, burnished orange-gold appearance, some bubble streams, and no lacing left behind. The aroma is not so strong, but a deep inhalation reveals cheap, store-brand, out-of-date caramel candy, wet grain husk, and other unidentifiable and unpleasant odors. Taste is of cheap, stale candy, overriding and highly unpleasant alcohol, and even a hop bite, if that can be believed. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, with a chalky under-taste. Camo Black Extra finishes highly boozy and terribly unpleasant. I poured it out. Bad stuff.

There is no better description of the perfect beer than this. Very efficient, very cost effective, light on the calories for the punch it packs, and the perfect beer for drinking in a trailer park. If you complain about the "burn" of this, you probably should just quit drinking now. This is the perfect compliment to some good ol' McNaughton's Whiskey, Southern Comfort, or Wild Turkey. Wild Turkey chased with Camo always reminds me of this scene girl from back in the day who introduced me to Heaven's own blend of the two.
You really just don't get much better than Camo Extra Black. The hangover is probably the best part, it lasts all of about 15-30 minutes, and then you're set to go for the day. Two or three cans of this and a fifth of R&R and you're set for a night of graveyard partying, streaking, and just good old blacked out fun.

Seeing as how Camo Black Ice was just about the shittiest malt liquor to pass these lips, it was only fitting to try the "Extra" version to *truly* plumb the depths of the worst beers on the planet.
For science. Here's to bad decisions...

Bright saturated orange color, rapid champagne carbonation, thin layer of white foam on the surface that does lace slightly. Audibly fizzy foam crackles like rice krispies.

Smells like artificial grape flavoring, energy drink, and Flintstones vitamins.

Tastes godawful. Very harshly astringent, vague paper and grape juice flavors, descending into utter malaise and ennui. Way overcarbonated and fizzy, rapidly fades into a numbing boozy aftertaste.

Even drinking this as cold as possible doesn't help mask the terrible taste. If you are just looking to get drunk, whiskey is a far better option.

Delightful story about Camo:

“It’s a unique category that appeals to college students and the ethnic market. It’s definitely skewed toward the male market.”

If I was a bum alcoholic, this would be perfect, sadly I'm not yet to that point yet, anyway. I picked this up at a local liquor store for $1.35, I wasn't expecting much, its a good thing I didn't get my hopes up, because this stuff is exactly what you pay for. At first i was thinking it wouldn't be too bad, it had a sweet apple kinda smell to it, the appearance was that of a normal lager, then.... I took a sip... I figured I should have braced myself, but not for anything like that. You can taste the alcohol as if its a boilermaker, however, it had kind of a sweet aftertaste that wasn't too bad, other than that for a lack of better words it tasted... "Spoiled" and pretty bitter. Drinking it too fast would make some of the most veteran drinkers cringe. Anyway, bottom line is, if your looking to get drunk, fast, and cheap, this is exactly what you need. For any other purpose, it doesn't really have one.

With "imported hops and extra malted barley", how could this not be good? Pours a clear golden color with a short lived golden head. The expected aromas of corn and sugar are there. Lots of apple and banana, but none of those imported hops. Tastes a bit sweet like coconut (maybe from rice?). Corn sugar and a little bit of bread flavor. Not bad, actually.

People really seem to hate THIS beer, but being on a fixed income, I LOVE CAMEO EXTRA BLACK!!! I will the admit the overall taste is, well yuck! I drink a 24oz can by pouring it into a pint glass, then SLAMING the whole glass down in one gulp!! I get two glasses per 24oz. can. And at $1.44 a can here in Portland, Oregon, it is ONE HELL OF A GOOD, CHEAP BUZZ ya all!

Special Reserve Camo Black Extra Ultra Premium High Gravity Lager Beer pours a typical lager yellow with no bells or whistles. A thin bubble ring resides around the rim of the pint. Aromas are moderately unpleasant. Sweet beer funk. This tastes like a weird concoction: PBR, Vodka, & sugar. There is a bad aftertaste of sweet alcohol with a residual thick liquid. At first six ounces there was some nice density, good bubbles, unfortunately masked by the bad taste. Last eighteen ounces no character develops, just the temperature. Overall this was mostly bad. It had some moderate attributes, but in the end taste is everything. I don't want to kill this beer because it is a beer, and if Buyability was a rating category this would be a 5. 24 FL OZ, 12.2 ABV, $1.59. As a beer advocate, I prefer this to an equally garbagy cheap ABV flavored E drink.

Had a tall can of Camo Black Extra (24 oz., 12.2% ALC)...

It does look decent upon pouring it in a tall glass, but upon a smell test it gives a rancid flavor.

The actual taste is quite an experience: I went from "this is ok," to "this is the worst 'malt liquor' I've ever had," in a matter of milliseconds, from the initial intake to the aftertaste. This brew is distinctively horrid. I'm down with Hurricane, I can do 211, but this is another level of putridness. The aftertaste is a mixture of rotting apricots and maggot-infested grapes of wrath...

The only reason to drink Camo Black Extra is budget and a very, very tight one. Even then, please save yourself the misery and buy a Four Loko or Joose.
